One of the many stories that allows to liven up the defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is the day the actors were implicated in the Australian government for illegally bringing their dogs Pistol Y Boo in the country of Oceania.
“Mr. has to send. Depp his dogs back to California or we have to euthanize them. You have approximately 50 hours to remove your dogs, ”Australia’s agriculture minister said in a 2015 note. Barnaby Joyceand controversy erupted.
What would be the premise of a James Bond film – or John Wick, considering that there are dogs involved – is true and, fortunately, ended up with the Yorkshire terrier literally alive and kicking.

It all started at the end of April 2015, the same day Depp, Heard, Pistol and Boo arrived in Australia for the actor to film some scenes for Pirates of the Caribbean.

Australia does not know the presence of animals, and if Australia does not know that dogs enter it without permission, there are problems. Ang Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) indicates that cats and dogs are only admitted if they have been inspected and checked first at the airport.
Upon learning of the illegal arrival of the Yorkshire, the Australian government asked the couple for their furry papers. But instead of complying, Depp and Heard delivered false documentation, something that soon lost its validity and became known in the media.
“You can put them on the same private plane that brought them in and fly back, out of our country,” Barnaby continued in the note made by El Universal.
Following the minister’s threats, Depp and Heard packed up their dogs and sent them to the United States. However, this has not been a barrier to problems..
The dogs stayed alive, but Heard almost had a bad time. The actress went through a brief legal process and ended up at liberty as she admitted in a magistrate’s court in Southport, in the state of Queensland, that she illegally brought her dogs to Australia.

A year after the conflict, Heard and Depp recorded a video asking for forgiveness for what they did and praising Australia’s biosecurity rules. They want to attract themselves to the Australian people, even in a medium … hard way.
In the fully scripted clip, Depp described Australia as “a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people.” The actor noted that “Australians are just as weird, warm and straightforward. They’ll say it firmly.”
In the finale, Johnny confronted the agriculture minister who threatened to kill his dogs: “Announce everything when you go to Australia.” He also joked about what Joyce said on a red carpet when it mentioned that he “ate” Pistol and Boo.
Depp’s defense used this 2020 episode to try to win the legal dispute for defamation against The Sun newspaper.
Kevin Murphywho worked with the actor for nearly eight years, said Heard asked him to contact his former assistant, Kate Jamesto ask him to lie under oath in court in Australia about the dog case.

Murphy denied this, and told Amber that he could not bring the dogs to Australia because the paperwork was incomplete.
At the time, The Sun’s lawyer, Sasha WassMurphy was accused of making a deceptive statement: “Why didn’t they go to Mr. Depp and ask him to intervene instead of just lying under oath?”
“Because Amber has great power and she will make my life miserable,” Depp’s assistant replied.
